La Dernière Goutte
Cyrille Vuillod comes from the Hautes-Alpes, and worked in the mountains as a ski instructor before shifting to a career in winemaking, a decision he made solely based on his enjoyment of wine. Cyrille started winemaking in 2011 where he worked and learned the trade under Jean-Claude Lapalu for three years. Having picked grapes in the Beaujolais area, he set up shop at the edge of Brouilly, and in 2012 he produced his first vintage in his own cellar, under the La Dernière Goutte label.
Gamay is the only grape Vuillod grows, but he buys some Riesling and Chardonnay from friends. Farming is organic. Everything is basket press and he uses fully carbonic maceration for a long time. He uses very little sulphur, only if he deems it absolutely necessary. His wines are full of life, unpretentious and delicious.
